World Environment Day 2013





JGC recognizes the importance of "World Environment Day ('WED')" and as a responsible company, JGC Management encourages all JGC projects to promote the World Environmental Day in their respective areas.  The World Environment Day is celebrated every year by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) every 5th June and this year WED is themed “THINK.EAT.SAVE“ - Reduce Your Food Print, and it aims to promote the elimination of food waste and food loss campaign globally.


According to UNEP, around the world, 1.3 billion tons of food is wasted every year while 20,000 children under the age of 5 die daily from hunger.  In response to UNEP's call, JGC believes that through the promotion and awareness of the importance of this year's theme, JGC workers will contribute their share in reducing their own food print.



BARZAN Celebrated World Environment Day



In celebration of the World Environment Day (WED) 2013, the Barzan Onshore Project encourages workers to heed the call to "Think, Eat. Save" to reduce their food print. Having more than 23,000 workers, the food wastes generated over five months are approximately 393,300 kgs, or an average of 78,700 kgs per month, according to statistics.



Given the above imbalance in lifestyles and the volume of food waste generated that imposes devastating effects on the environment, the Barzan Environmental Team encourages everyone to become more aware of the environmental impact of their food choices and empowers them to help reduce resource consumption. 


Barzan Subcontractors had their unique celebrations starting from allotting 30 minutes for a clean-up drive within their respective areas followed by a short program in their respective camps.


The programs had short introductions highlighting the World Environmental Day theme and messages from the Company, and the JGC Environmental Section, and video clips.
